after the passage of the act, officials of the

they should test the constitutionality of the
measure but that It would be necessary for

When the new tarlJTs were filed with the

warranted that body in making a sugges

the carriers permission to at once post and

on that date cancelling the present rates
and making the advanced rates effective.
In making this order the commlaaton does
not bar any complaints that may be made

Soldiers of Roamaata Are tVlnalng
Battle Against Baads of
BUCHAREST. March 0. Field guns
loaded with grapeshot, according to ths
oflicial report, are winning against ths
revolutionary peasantry, whose arms are
mostly hay forks and scythe blades. The
Insurgents were able to hold their own
against the troops at close quarters and
even withstood cavalry charges, doing ter
rible execution with long pronged forks
and scythe blades strapped to long poles,
but the slaughter alnos the troops used ar
tillery appears to be terrifying them Into
In the district of Vlashi, where the out

The self-styled "generals" usually turn
out to be country schoolmasters and village
priests. Many women are fighting in ths
Insurgent ranks and some of them have
been found among the killed, side by aids
with their husbands, sons and brothers.
Details of the attack made by ths peas
ants on OalaU show that a pitched battle
was fought. The insurgents, who were
several thousand strong, carried ths outer
earthworks by storm and captured a suburb
which they set on fire after pillaging- It
Three battalions of Infantry attempted to
stem the peasants' entry into the city it
self, but ths fork and scythe-armed rustics
fought desperately, hand to hand, and had
almost routed the troops when the governor
ordered field guns, loaded with grapeshot,
to be fired at the Insurgents, who wavered
and then fled. The fire of the guns wrought
great havoo on the retreating masses.
A number of conflicts between troops and
marauders continue to be reported. Two
thousand insurgents at QorJ are said to
have been quieted by the assurances of
the authorities, without resort to force.
One hundred and fifty more rioters have
been wounded at Balleeohtchl and several
of them killed and many arrested. Ar
tillery was used st Cucuestt, Valoelele and
elsewhere and in aome Instances whole vil
